I’ve spent most of my time lately knitting and watching The Great British Bake Off. I haven’t done a ton of baking this year, but I was inspired by the show to make this useful baked good: gluten-free peanut butter and jelly oat breakfast bars.
Recently, I’ve really enjoyed eating Bobo’s Oat Bars for breakfast. They’re gluten- and dairy-free, and they come in all sorts of inventive flavors.
But… they’re about $3 a piece at Sprouts, and I don’t really want to spend $15 on breakfast bars every week.
Instead, I’ve developed this recipe mimicking one of my favorite flavors of Bobo’s. I hope you enjoy it. Leave your questions in the comments!
Gluten-Free Peanut Butter & Jelly Oat Breakfast Bars
- 1.5 cups gluten-free rolled oats
- 1/2cup gluten-free flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup unsalted peanut butter
- 1/2 cup jelly or jam
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- baking pan covered with parchment paper ( I used 9×13, but you can use a smaller plan depending on how tall you want your bars to be)
- measuring spoons and cups
- large mixing bowl
- medium mixing bowl
- wooden spoon
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In the large mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free oats, gluten-free flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In the medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut oil, peanut butter, jam, sugar, and vanilla.
- Pour the wet ingredients from the medium bowl over the dry ingredients in the large bowl. Use a wooden spoon to stir and fold the ingredients until evenly mixed.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly.
- Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops of the oatmeal bars are just starting to brown. The bars will have a soft yet dense cakey consistency.
- Allow to cool for an hour before slicing into 16 bars.
- Store in an airtight container.
I hope you enjoy these gluten-free PB&J oat breakfast bars!
